Pursuant to Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 235 and 49 U.S.C. 20502(a), the following railroad has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking approval for the discontinuance or modification of the signal, as detailed below.

Applicant: CSX Transportation, Inc., Mr. Joseph Ivanyo, Chief Engineer, Communications and Signals, 500 Water Street, Speed Code J-350, Jacksonville, FL 32202.

The CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) seeks approval of the proposed modification of the block signal system on Main Tracks #1 and #2, at R Cabin, milepost (MP) CA-83.10, Peninsula Subdivision, Huntington Division, Richmond, Virginia.

CSXT will retire controlled signals, 80LA, 80LC, and 80R, at Egypt (MP 81.8) and controlled signals 88LA, 88LC, 88LD, at MP 82.3. The power-operated switch at MP 82.3 will be converted to hand-operation and an electric lock will be installed. An electric lock is to be installed on the hand-operated switch at MP 81.5. Main Track #1 method of operation will become Rule 261 signaled in both directions within Yard Limits, between MP 81.00 and MP 83.2, with the discontinuance and removal of automatic signal #821, at Scott St. (MP 82.03), and automatic signal #831 (MP 83.1) near Orleans St. Electric locks will be installed at switch #83 (MP 83) and switch #83.2 (MP 83.2) on Main #1.
